Do you purchase goods from Amazon? If the answer is YES, you could help raise much needed funds for The Sick Children’s Trust every time you click ‘BUY’.
The online retail giant operates a charitable giving scheme called Amazon Smile, which gives a donation to a charity of your choosing every time you purchase goods via the smile.amazon.co.uk website or phone app. The donation comes at no cost to you, with Amazon donating 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases.
Since its launch in 2018, Amazon Smile has already generated over £14 million for charitable causes here in the UK.
It is a hassle-free way to generate vital funds for The Sick Children’s Trust, allowing us to continue supporting the families of sick children at our ‘Homes from Home’.
It is another small but significant way that you can help us, and we would be grateful to anyone who signs up to the scheme.
